8:00pm
try to confirm with the search for an expolice officer with a vendetta against the lapd. might there have been a sighting of him? we're working on it. stay with fox. hi, everyone, i'm meteorologist maria molina from the fox extreme weather center. we want to update you on a developing story with a large storm system that right now is producing some tornados across portions of mississippi and alabama. we have at least one confirmed tornado in the hattiesburg area in mississippi where wo we've confirmed damage and current tornado warnings that affect us across the region and when the warnings are issued, you've got to seek shelter immediately. two tornado watches in effect until 11 p.m. local time, parts of southern mississippi and southeastern portions of louisiana and the boxes where we currently have the tornado warnings with possible tornados currently on the ground and a lot of rain from
8:01pm
the storms as well. and we have multiple inches that have been reported across this area with flash flooding possible, tonight, and even over the next several days across the southeast. now, we'll continue with more of huckabee. >> tonight on huckabee, we're under attack and our enemies are using a new kind of weapon. >> cyber is now at a point where the technology is there to cripple a country. >> is the u.s. prepared to fight off a major cyber attack? >> and it sounded too good to be true. >> if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. >> but now that the dream is becoming reality, 7 million americans will lose their insurance under obamacare. are you next? >> ladies and gentlemen, governor mike huckabee. [applaus [applause] >> thank you. thank you very much. we have a great crowd here and
8:02pm
i'm amazed so many of them were able to get all through the ice and snow of the big blizzard of 2013 to be here. and i think they're just glad to be indoors. some of them didn't know they were coming to the show, they just showed up and it was a warm place, and here they are. well, welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. this past thursday night i had the pleasure of speaking on the campus of syracuse university to members of the student body, faculty and community on the topic of the future of conservativism. and it was sponsored by the college republicans on campus who are definitely in the minority at syracuse. you know, i think i've learned that the future of conservativism is a lot better in the hands of some of the students that i met than i feel it is with some of the adults who think they're in charge. i had dinner with about ten of the students before the speech and i absolutely loved hearing those students explain what
8:03pm
made them believe in a free market economy. individual responsibility, sanctionty of human life and defense. pan they didn't hold the views because it would make them popular and loved by fellow students. they thought through how their future and their country could best be free he. there were present of students who attended who told me they disagreed with pretty much everything i stood for. even those students were respectful and gracious. >> i took issue with the commonly held and misinformed few that those students are engaged and that they failed to care about their future. frankly, i'm not so sure that a preponderance of students in my day were all that totally plugged into the issues either. some of my generation were very active in leading any war protests pushing for 18 years olds to get to the vote and even for racial equality, but those i met the other night and other conservative students i've met the last
8:04pm
several months and years, they bring intelligence, intellectual passion, thoughtful consideration of others and a desire to seek truth. i've been a little disgusted to hear that some people in the conservative movement of the republican party think our way forward is to manipulate the primary process by trying to destroy good and decent republican candidates with boatloads of big money to as soon assure we end up nominating establishment republicans instead of movement conservatives. the fratricide approach of the establishment, to spend money to attack those of the conservative wing of the republican family will prove catastrophic. okay, i'm fine with raising and spending money to elect the republicans you like, but why would any republican want to do the dirty work of the democrats and destroy a fellow republican. and i was greatly encouraged by the maturity and visionary, big picture perspective much those university students i met. they know what they're for and not just what they're against.
8:05pm
i feel a lot better about the future of conservativism and the present. i'd welcome the younger conservatives taking a much larger role in shaping the republican party. the truth is i went to syracuse to encourage the young conservative students and i sure hope i did that, but i do know for sure they encouraged me. [applause] >> that's my view. >> . >> mike: earlier this week, the federal reserve reported that hackers had infiltrated one of their internal websites. the hackers reportedly didn't affect any operations at the central bank, but the recent increase of banks on high profile targets has experts saying that the u.s. is one of the most vulnerable and ill-prepared countries for a massive cyber attack. >> late january, computer networks at the department of energy were hacked and personal information on
8:06pm
several hundred employees was compromised by the intruders and just this week, reported that cyber criminals are continuing to hack the system of the wall street journal and other media organizations reported hacking attempts, washington post, new york times and bloomberg. and the bush family, including both presidents were hacked and exposed and the pass indicated to bush 43's security gate. with so much of the infrastructure dependent on data, the electrical grid, transportation, financial institution, even military operation. on wednesday, defense secretary leon panetta spoke on the thousands of cyber attacks that threatened this country every day. >> thousands of cyber attacks that are striking at the private sector, strike at silicon valley, strike at government, strike at the defense department and our
8:07pm
intelligence agencies. and cyber is now at a point where the technology is there to cripple a country. >> well, joining us now to talk about the serious threats of secyber attacks, at the defense post naval school. dr. aquilla, great to have you with us, thank you for joining me today. [applause] >> so everybody knows, what is a cyber attack. >> a cyber attack aims to disrupt information flow. sometime the information flow, controls our power grid. sometimes it controls our financialses, our stock markets. basically everybody run by society is run by the flow, and our military. and the head of the cyber command said last summer scale of one to ten, rates america's cyber security a three. >> mike: that's not encouraging and the fact is
8:08pm
that if we had some serious cyber war going on. this is something that would not affect the military, it would affect every american. tell us about the ways they would be affected immediately. >> you're in the middle of is he severe weather. imagine the power going out for more than 350,000 people so far. imagine 20 million people without period for a measurable period of time. i don't think the whole country's power grid could be taken down, but it's possible on a regional basis. think about the disruption of air traffic controls, particularly in bad weather or at busy times. and think about the flows of oil in pipelines or natural gas. a lot of these are run by entire entirely automated control and everything that makes us prosperous, makes us powerful. all of these technologies, paralyze and we must secure them. and things like going to the
8:09pm
atm machine to do standard banking and all sorts of things we sort of take for granted, the supermarket scanners could be affected by a cyber attack. >> everything you do depends on information security and if you don't have it, there's little you can do. in 2007, some hackers attacked the country of astona where 97% of the people do lelectro electronic banking and the country was crippled for a couple of weeks. >> mike: just this week hackers had gotten into the wall street journal, new york times and i'm sure when they got to the new york times they didn't find anything worthwhile, but they got into and into the accounts of former presidents, bush 41, bush 43. that's scary stuff. the gate code to former president bush's house, they were able to hack that. i mean, that's kind of frightening, isn't it? >> well, let me frighten you
8:10pm
some more. our secure defense information systems are sometimes intruded upon. there are things we call in my business moonlight mays and tighten reins, the names in public that seek intrusion into the system in real life and of course we do exercises all the time to see how secure they are. and the exercises tend to suggest we have a lot of room for improvement. >> mike: what are we doing to stop it and how can we stop it? >> well, i think, unfortunately, we've had legislative gridlock long before the hyper partisanship of our time, 20 years of gridlock on cyber security legislation. largely out of individual concerns about the loss of privacy and also, commercial concerns about sharing information about incidents. so, legislatively we've had some problems and i think we've also had a wrong mindset about defense. people, probably many people in your audience are working in places or even at their homes and had something called firewalls to try to protect their information.
8:11pm
the problem here is that the master hackers walked right through fire walls. the fairwall reacts to what it already knows is a threat. we have to work beyond firewalls and strongly encrypting all of our information and just ask your audience how many of them have a 12 character password that's made up of letters and numbers and symbols? if you do, you can be pretty secure for a while, as long as you change that regularly. but if you have just six or seven letters, a hacker can crack that in less than a minute. >> that's kind muof scary. for people who are good at hacking into computers. what do we do different in the united states or than russia or other countries. and i know you've written and said we may not have the best approach. >> well, i think we've taken very much a law enforcement view of hackers in our country. in fact, relations are pretty
8:12pm
poisonous between authorities and the hacking community in this country. on the other hand in places like russia, china, elsewhere the master hackers are courted. there was a young man a few weeks ago, aaron schwartz, a pioneering figure in the internet who decided he wanted to put all the academic articles ever written in journals online and available to everyone and professor, we just love this idea, right? but he accessed mit journals, illicitly and the government was going to put him on trial and his sentence could have been found guilty. instead of taking a trial or taking a plea he killed himself. and recently i took a position asking president obama to pardon a british hacker, a brilliant autistic man who got into our defense systems and wanted to know about ufo's, hey, who doesn't. and he did a little bit of disruption in the course of
8:13pm
his journey into information systems and spent ten years trying to extradite him. finally ruled a suicide threat and would not extradite them. it's nice to send a signal to the hacker community. we have to have a way to get along. >> mike: thank you for being here. and obamacare is becoming an farce. and the more you learn, the more it makes you feel nauseous. and the doctor will expose obamacare and what it's all about when we come back. i'd like to hear from you. go to my website, mikehuckabee.com or sign up for my facebook page and follow me on twitter, find a link to that and more at foxnews.com. mikehuckabee.com. it just makes it easier to go.

8:17pm
promises that the president made when he was touting the grant health care plan was this: . >> no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise. to the american people. and if you like your doctor, you will be be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. >> oh, really? well, guess what? seven million people are going to lose their insurance according to the nonpartisan congressional budget office because it's a lot cheaper for a business owner to pay a fine to the government for not covering employees than it is to pay for the coverage. what do you think they're opting for. joining me now is talk about it is private practice physician, doctor, good to have you back on the show, thank you. >> thank you for having me. >> 7 million people are predicted to lose health care coverage because their employers are saying, doesn't make sense, i could pay $10,000 to cover them or a
8:18pm
$2100 fine. the economics are pretty simple, aren't they? >> they certainly are and this was all forseeable. you know, the basic protection affordable care act is really a political surface. governor. it doesn't protect patients and it's absolutely not the affordable. and we could have seen this happen. anybody who read the law could have seen this happen. but then we know, they didn't read the law before they voted for it and in fact, they thought they had to pass it in order to read it. that was the tragedy. now, we have the political circus, and quite frankly, humans would do what a human would do. a man who owns a business wants to keep it viable and makes perfect sense, with the cost of insurance would put him out of business and he has no other opportunity than to drop the insurance. as you know, theoretically, these people will be able to buy insurance on an exchange if they can afford it. and that's yet another problem and i would say while the cbo
8:19pm
came out with a figure of 7 million losing insurance, you ain't seen nothing yet. i would suggest that millions and millions more would lose insurance and would find it difficult to buy it themselves. >> a lot of people have never thought of. if the employer doesn't provide it and the employer might not the business is under 50 employees so doesn't have to. a lot of employers will say we're not going to let anyone work over 30 hours, we don't have to buy it and the individual is required by law and they have to go out in the marketplace and get it and the law says they can't be without it. i mean, this is, i think, a piece of this. >> a tragedy, a human tragedy and sadly, the poorest among us are going to be hurt the worse. people make decisions usually intel pfent, the american citizen pretty smart person
8:20pm
and they should be able to make the decisions and choices and many have made a choice to buy their children milk, to send their children to college and decided to not buy insurance. now their insurance will be more expensive and less likely to be able to afford it and now have to pay a penalty and they don't have anything for it. i would venture to say that he when you look at the plan, not insurance that these people are having to buy. they're buying a benefit package. the poorest among us are pieing utili coverage for themselves and their neighbors where we could have have a catastrophic plan, a different subject, but this is not about insurance, this is about a benefit package, a huge, unaffordable, bankrupting benefits package that quite frankly, no one will be able to afford. last night i was talking to one of my patience, my own patients who told me she had
8:21pm
talked to an insurance company the other day and warned that her $700 per month insurance policy pretty expensive, is going to $2000 a month in 2014. >> mike: wow, unbelievable. >> 2000. unbelievable. who in your audience can afford that? >> no, they can't. and i think that's what the people are in a rude awakening. i want to talk about what people in congress are beginning to think and maybe there are some issues and also to ask our audience, are you having problems getting an appointment with the the doctor that you really want to see, that doctor that the president said you can always go see. what's happened to the quality of your health care under obamacare? we'll talk about that with the doctor when we return. but don't worry, he'll find someone else. ♪ who's that lady? ♪ who's that lady? ♪ sexy lady, who's that lady?

8:24pm
8:25pm
>> we're back with the doctor. and let' talk about the quality of care under obamacare. will it get better or will people find it better to see their doctor? >> people are finding it already hard to see their doctor and the average way, at least in california. my patience are telling me they have to wait four months to find a doctor. and one of my friends in massachusetts under mass care called for a pap smear and given an appointment 11 months away. talk about finding it hard to see a doctor. many in private practice, i'm sad to say, have decided to join hospital practices where quite frankly they now are working for a hospital, direct conflict of interest. not a good thing. and these people are now nine to five. not 24/7. you know, as a doctor i work 24/7. i am available for my patients.
8:26pm
there is nothing about health care that is good about an insurance card unless you have a doctor. you need to have a doctor. somebody to call. not to stand in line in an emergency room, but somebody to call. and most of these doctors are now not available at the end of the phone like they used to be. they're not in private practice. they're working for an insurance company or a hospital. and waits are long and that whole thing about a relationship? well, that's just gone. and you know, everything good about a doctor-patient relationship is about better care, better care required for the doctor who cares about you. you need a doctor, not the name on a card. the person at the end of the the phone. someone you call, someone you trust. >> do you think some people in congress are beginning to realize what a mess they've made of the health care system, democrats as well as of republicans who by the way didn't vote for it, but still, any hope that you see, as you talk to members of congress that they might want to change some things? >> indeed. i have seen some hope.
8:27pm
the ipath, independence payment advisory board. there's co-sponsorship to repeal that i'm seeing some hope to maybe repeal the device tax, another forseeable program and all of these device companies have decided to move off shore and not developing research like they used to. >> i want to make sure when you talk about the device tax, braces on your kids' teeth to being able to have a walker or a wheelchair, or a colostomy bag. anything, there's a tax for having the device. i've never understood that one. >> indeed, it's a 2.3% tax on total revenue. for everything over $100. that tax of course will be passed on to the consumer and it's really, talk about unaffordable. it's unaffordable. unacceptable and again, i have to stress that good care is about having a doctor-patient
8:28pm
relationship. everything good that happens in my office happens between the doctor and the patient. and as i said the last time when i was on your show, the government just does not belong in the room. there's nothing about the government, their processes or their paper work, that makes for good care. and i might add, that given your last segment about cyber hacking, imagine when your electronic medical records goes across to the government and someone hacks into your private life. everybody's record is now accessible to the world. that's just wrong it's personal, private, built on relationship not about government bureaucracy and i think the dems are starting to see that as well. no republican voted for this bill and there were a lot of democrats who did. i think even in the senate you know, evan bahy, works for the
8:29pm
medical device company and i think the dems are getting smart and they're going to have to wait in the same lines as anybody else so give them an opportunity to wait in line in an emergency room and by the way, i was in my emergency room that sits outside my office, and i was there the other night. the lines are out into the hallway. there wasn't even enough chairs for the patients. older people waiting ten and 12 hours to see a doctor with whom they don't have a relationship. not good care, governor. not good care. >> mike: that's one of the reasons we love having you, and hope to have you back, making it clear and scare the day lights out of us. thank you for being here. >> there is hope. there is hope.

legendary singer tony bennett is for banning assault weapons, but in explaining why, he unindeposititentionallya case for the reason we need our second amendment rights. >> it's the kind of thing that happened to the great country of germany when nazis came over and created tragic things and they had to be told off and if we continue this kind of violence and accept it in our country, the rest of the world is really going to take care of us in a very bad way. >> you know, tony bennett was one of the great entertainers and singers of all time, and no question about it. he may have left his heart in san francisco, i think he left his in manhattan that day because if you heard what he he was saying as if he said, well, we had to stop the nazis, let's be reminded of something.
8:37pm
i'm going to be in israel next week, a month ago, auschwitz and poland and possible for the nazis to march 11 million people to their deaths because the nazis were the only ones who had welcomes. they had taken up all the guns. who could stop them. and that's why the second amendment rights of every american are precious and protected. it's not just so we can go hunting or target shooting or go up to camp david pop a few clays with the president, which he does all the time. >> it's so we can protect ourselves, our family and for that matter, our freedom, if necessary from tyranny. that's why we need the second amendment. neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow. that used to be the mantra of the post office. that may not stop mail delivery, but saturdays will. and it's not the day of the week, but it's the lack of money that's going to prevent you from getting saturday mail. earlier this week, post master
8:38pm
general explained why the postal service stopped deliveries and pickups on saturday. >> to get some perspective of our liquidity situation, a typical large organization would have either cash on hand or quick borrowing ability two month's worth of cash to cover their operating cost. in october, one point this year, the postal service had less than four days of cash on hand and that's a scary situation and in no situation the business should be in. >> no, it's not. the fact is part of the problem the postal service faces is that congress always gets in the middle of anything they try to do more efficient. closing a tiny post office in some rural outfit to serve one customers, and i know that's controversial. anytime congress gets involved in something as simple as delivering a letter and a

you the power to be a mom. >> yeah. >> mike: so did you know then now difficult some of these choices would be for you? >> yeah, you know, at the time i was young and scared and unprepared and i just ended up you know, finding a police that would give me a place to live and that was the pregnancy crisis center and i really don't know where i'd be today without that place. >> mike: there were people now who really want to politicize this and i think that's tragic because your motive is because you know how that helped you through that very tough time of your life. >> right. >> mike: but there were some horrible things thrown at you over this. >> the movie is a story about beethoven's mother, it's just a historical piece not making a political statement one way or the other and the reason why i wanted to get involved was because 100% of the
8:45pm
proceeds are going to charity and they're supporting pregnancy homes all over the world. and because of my past, it just hits home with me and i'm excited to be a part of it. >> have people tried to use your own advocacy for crisis pregnancy to divide you and your son? because it seems like there are always people who want to exploit somebody who's in the entertainment business and you know, just even separate them from their roots. is that happening? >> i think the media likes to make up stories. you know. >> mike: oh, really? i've never noticed that. (laughter) i'm shocked, shocked, pattie that they would do something like that. >> i've seen stories saying, you know, justin bieber's mom's new film is dividing them and he's not happy about it and that's not the case. so-- >> justin's not mad at you. >> no, not at all. he's supportive of me and why i want to do this film is to
8:46pm
help pregnant girls. i think no matter what your stance, i think that everyone would agree that it's a good thing to help young girls who need it. >> mike: you know, it would be irrational for him to be upset because had you made the choice many people were pressuring you to make, he wouldn't be here. i think that's one of the most powerful things about your story. when we had you here before i thought i wonder how many young girls have thought about the fact that pattie mallette making the decision as a squared 17-year-old resulted in the person that they just adore even being here. and you talk about the passion you have for the organizations, the crisis pregnancy centers. if this film catches hold and people respond to it it, what's the potential? what could it possibly do to help those crisis pregnancy centers all over the country? >> you know, their goal right now is to raise 10 million dollars for pregnancy centers around the world and so,
8:47pm
february 28th, they're planning on showing the movie. there's some theaters that are hosting it and you know, different events, different places that are hosting it, so, the money raised, 100% of the proceeds is going towards charity. >> you said the film is about beethoven's mother. >> yes. >> tell me what it is about beethoven that would have something to do with crisis pregnancy centers in the 21st century? >> i think the reason i resonate with beethoven's mother is because she had such a difficult life growing up and, you know, she was in a horrible marriage relationship and you know, she really struggled with, you know, facing committing aside and abortion and so, just so much of that resonates with my own story. >> mike: pattie it's always great having you here and i thank you for your courage, the candor of your story
8:48pm
because i think that really touches people and we hope the film will be very successful in raising fund for crisis pregnancy centers all over the country. thanks for coming. >> thank you so much. >> pattie mallette. well, they say that evhe who laughs last laughs the louders. and we're going to close the show with a humous spin on the news. that's next. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

(laughter) and also mentioned no puppy skin. no no puffy skin, if you have puffy skin should be going to the doctor. >> mike: jim, would this change anything that you would wear. >> no, just like this probably eating a sandwich. but this is the network that has two and a half men.
